Pineapple Party

Today a few of us ladies challenged ourself to learn / be taught how to use the pineapple trim tool (ruler) by creative grids. Our instructor was Dee Doebler who was excellent. In a short time our sewing machines were smokin! Here is her step by step board.


The start of my blocks and a completed sample.


Getting advice... Margaret came for a little while but had to leave. She is busy packing and moving to her dream home.


Judy who graciously hosted us at her lake house. Her finished pineapple block quilt top is totally scrappy. Just my style.


Here we are with all our completed blocks. It was such a fun day!!!


My DH saw this picture and laughed a lot.
